Defense Minister Panos Kammenos on Friday asked for the immediate release of the two Greek soliders detained after accidentally crossing the border into Turkey, describing them as “hostages.”

“At this moment, there are two Greek hostages in Turkish prisons,” Kammenos said after a meeting with his Romanian counterpart Mihai Fifor in Bucharest.

“I am asking the support of the Romanian defense minister for the immediate release of these NATO, European and Greek servicemen,” he added.
